Capital City Beverages will be donating a beer for us to sample and their Craft Beer Manager will be on hand to present to us.

The beer we will be sampling is from Yazoo Brewing Company from Nashville, TN. The couple that started the company are actually from MS and got married on next to the Yazoo River…hence the name of the company. Or so I have been told.

The beer of choice is Yazoo Summer Brew – light and tangy wheat ale influenced by traditional german styles with a tart finish.

The Chef is working on food pairing and will be presenting us with small bites for everyone to try. We just found out which beer it would be this morning. The beer is new to our market area.
